Christmas Eve

Our Fourth Annual Christmas Eve went off without a hitch.  Both families present and accounted for, including the newest brother-in-law!

On the menu:

Roasted Carrots and Parsnips with Tarragon

Braised Swiss Chard


Braised Pork in the Black Rooster

Delicious!  We sipped on a Bisol Prosecco di Vadobbiadene before dinner while snacking on shrimp and my mom's famous mushroom pate.

With dinner we had a few reds, most notably a Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Desserts consisted of mini cheesecakes with raspberry and cranberry coulis, a variety of cookies and a cheese plate, all compliments of the sister-in-laws.
